TalkingScot is (or was) a very popular web site for those researching Scottish ancestry. The site went offline abruptly but the TalkingScot Administration Group wants everyone to know that the problem is only temporary.
The following was written a few minutes ago by the TalkingScot Administration Group:
Dear TalkingScot member:
We are contacting you to confirm that TalkingScot is ALIVE!!
The company who owned the server shut it down giving no prior warning to those whose sites were stored there. The TalkingScot Administrative group has confirmed that ours is not the only web site affected - there are several others leaving posts to the same effect on the web. It came as a surprise to everyone, not just TalkingScot.
We have been successful in engaging the services of a new server host for TalkingScot. It is now down to how long the rebuild from backup materials will take.
One of the AG members will post a note www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=391114.new;topicseen#new as soon as we're up and running.
In the meantime, please feel free to share this e-mail with any of your TalkingScot connections, as we will be unable to contact ALL of the 3,000 plus members immediately.
We are looking forward to being back online as soon as possible and we thank you for your patience and support.
TalkingScot Administration Group
